to disrupt matches the local level, but the global economy. unfortunately, what you're hearing is too much of the gloom and doom in terms of where america is that it comes to competitiveness. my view is that it is still the best country on the planet when it comes to starting up a business in advancing ideas you have or access to talent. the challenge we have before us because we are the architects of our own destiny, the key issues we need to confront. if you look at the next 30 years, if we don't address i don't think we can remit the most competitive country in the world. first it comes down to immigration. it is broken. it makes absolutely no sense to educate some of the smartest people in the world with advanced degrees and then ask them to leave the country and go start up something elsewhere. why are you stapling right to their graduate application of these that were a green card. second, when it comes to education, the challenge we have domestically is that system is always broken as we look for the next 30 years. in detroit, for example, their 3400 i.t. job openings in the detroit
, and particularly at the local level where they can easily elect school board members friendly to their positions. they can b be in the position of arguing with themselves. the argument. so with this line of thinking, states need to act to container power, lest they block reform, drive up costs and otherwise do what teachers groups tend to do. on the other side are the progressive reformers, mostly democrats, who bemoan to the tactics of walker and casey can argue for more conciliatory approach. the arne duncan, for example, actor and a big debate in wisconsin, he argued walker's position was quote nonsensical because the unions had already conceded on the key kitchen table issues. they already said will take lower pay, lower benefits. to be sure, these progressives are not afraid to scrimmage with the unions, or to raise money to defeat them politically, but they see collective bargaining and striking rights as sacrosanct. and this issue is far from settled. california in a few weeks as an initiative on the ballot that would make the golden state are right to work state, meaning it would elimina

local leaders in learning. technology companies have to get engaged in this and the idea is to point out they are all about reaching into mid markets. oral communities are mid markets. you need to engage with local leaders at the roll level to understand what this technology is and how to do it and it is agriculture and service and manufacturing. has got to get into the organization and economically transform the way a operate. the second search of stakeholders that i have a great deal of respect for but been under the gun and that is higher education. i was laid off from georgia tech a month ago because georgia tech's budget was cut and where georgia tech has a huge commitment, getting to rural areas and solve technology problems. it was not economically feasible but universities, particularly public universities like georgia tech and the land grant universities that have not reached as a mission have a public service commitment to solve these problems and personally i think there's an opportunity for collaboration not only with telecommunications and local leaders but technology compan
that the united states has the local role, but i don't think it's entirely terrible either. because they are both ending up in the same way to see which one is better. and i would prefer otherwise, but i don't think that's the end of the world for british banks or american banks. or for either one. you get europe to follow suit, as they should. they are not the enormous threat right this minute, but they could become obviously. >> but by threat, you mean threat to the financial system? >> yeah, yeah. just to kind of benefit to the economy. characterization of all kinds of statistics and i'm going to give you an uncertain statistic. we added statistics for value added by industry in the united states. i'm sure you have them here. it's pretty tricky. it's pretty straight forward in the manufacturing business. if you look at value added numbers in the united states for the first decade, the decade before the crisis rough ly, you'll see phenomenal numbers, value added in the united states of the financial industry went from 5 to 10. if you look at it in real terms, it went up very little. so you had
asks this. the drought we experience this summer was devastating to hoosier farmers and local economies, and post a threat to public health. whether or not this guy can be attributed to climate change, climate scientists agree that we will see more drought and more extreme heat. more threats to public health and the economy. i'm not asking was the equity with this but i'm asking if you believe the u.s. government has a significant responsibility to help communities and individuals repair for climate related threats to our well being. and if so, what specific policies would you recommend? if not, do you think adapting to climate instability is largely the responsibility of individuals and the private market? mr. gorn, you will go first for one minute. horning: i'm glad she has -- is more political discussion than it is, talk about climate change. we don't know what a correct temperature is but i do believe that there is a valid role for the federal government in protecting resource pics i do believe there is a very strong will that is, in fact, nothing like a very well at all. crony capi
as booktv, american history tv and c-span's local content vehicles look behind the scenes at the history and literally life of a gust of may and saturday at noon eastern on booktv on c-span2, and sunday at 5 p.m. on american history tv on c-span3. >> according to the new america foundation, 2012 is been the most expensive election season on record due in part to the supreme court citizens united decision. in this discussion panelists examine the effect that corporate spending has had on the campaign season. this is an hour and a half. >> good morning. good morning and welcome to the new america foundation. my name is mark schmitt. i'm a senior fellow at the roosevelt institute and a research fellow here at new america foundation. the vice president of new america and i have pulled together a good panel on what's really going on with money and politics in 2012. we call it beyond sticker shock because the idea is to kind of get beyond the basic idea of that huge amount of money here in politics. i remember when i first got involved in this issue in 1996 i was working on the hill, and my bo
example of this which just to be clear, most of the money i think close to local tv stations. and, of course, there are very big local tv stations and conglomerates, but those tv stations make a huge amount of money from political ads. it's a great business. partly because they can essentially inflate their prices, make up quotes. bid prices up effectively because no one knows what the real price people are paying our and they are resisting local broadcasters are resisting right now a proposal. >> this is the whole idea of what i was talking about at the very beginning of free the files and the fcc. the tv stations themselves, the broadcasters were some of the folks saying it's too burdensome to have to put this stuff online. it's too burdensome to make is easily searchable for the public. before i think was the beginning of august when these were required to be put up online, to find out what groups are spent and what candidates were spending, the actual amount of tv stations, you have to go there in person and for the record yourself. that's incredibly burdensome, and, as a citi
that have a government of local government connections. for those companies that relatively soft budget constraints. they can get very big loans at very low interest rates, sometimes zero interest because the local government sometimes reimburses them for the interest payment, but for private enterprises i hear from small to medium enterprises that big banks will meet with him. and the smaller banks either laugh at them or ask for a bribe to get a loan approved. a lot of private enterprises have no choice but to go over to the black market for lending. and as we found out with some of the big crises been happening over the past year, those lending rates are in the triple digits. the small to medium enterprise may have to pay 1% interest to get started. and so that's why we have a situation when their businesses were not looking good, we have ceos just laying and leaving everything in place or committing suicide. so we absolutely cannot underestimate the problems facing the growth of the private enterprise sector in china, and the fact is despite is unbelievable problems 80% of china's b
're so many stakeholders, what i would call a responsible stakeholders, at the local level, benefit from current arrangements that the leadership would have to be taking on. so, i think that taking on some elements of the economic reform program are much more likely, and the political reform area i think though that ultimately the chinese will have to do both and we need to encourage them to do both. >> dr. frieden? >> there are a wide array of issues that the new chinese leader will have to address, and in particular, just mentioned the importance of economic reforms. and i think it is the case that many people in china come including people at the high levels of the chinese system recognize the current economic model, the one that china has been following for the last 20 or 30 years is not sustainable, that it emphasizes investment over domestic consumption, it emphasizes exports and that it has produced it is beginning to produce distortions in china's economy which may set it up for future crises, and that those could happen sooner rather than later. but the recognition of those prob
that is so polluting and so damaging. so i do think there's some priorities. i also think with the local community wants, matters a lot. i don't live in indian point. i'm not running to represent indian point, so i do think we have to ask the constituents of their what they want. i talk to people where the power plants are, and there accountable with it and there's a lot of jobs. i do think it's very, very important. in indian point that might be a completely different situation and i think we have to ask the people there what they want to do. i presume the government is doing the. >> moderator: and two, trenton. ann marie buerkle, but we do, what you agree with what the governor wants to do about indian point, shut it down or not? buerkle: i do not and i don't think dan answered the question. this country needs a companies of energy policy, which not just this administration, several administrations have failed to put together. and that energy policy needs to be all sources of energy. we need to do the things they think carefully why we protect the environment. we have reserves, with oi
. >> the crossroads different venues also engage in more localized regions, states, congressional and senate. a bit about how you choose your priorities since you have a broader scope than is. >> that's a good question. the goal of american crossroads is to be president obama into electing a president but were also heavily invested in senate and house races. a lot of the other super pacs or not. we are focused on all of the senate races are where you see a lot more of the advertising earlier on just because senate races, people figure, pay more attention earlier. will also engage in number of house races problems later. >> look, that's the other thing. crossroads place an outsized role in the senate races, and don't think that these two are not wind. i'm not suggesting it nefarious, but even if let's just say there's parity between the democrats and republicans in presidential advertising, the republican side, crossroads and others, our way of outspending on the senate races and house races. and those all have an impact because it's the infinite, how do people feel when there's millions of dollars

[laughter] in their natural habitats and without judgment, in silence mostly because we barely speak the same language. i've been tireless in research. i lived with liberals, broke bread with them, humored them, teased them, prodded them, and, yes, even loved some of them, some my friends, and some members of my own family. my commitme
